Product Description

The elegant 90mm (3½ inch) tall Alibaba vase is suited perfectly to this delightful painting of one of our most popular garden birds, the blue tit. These charming and beautifully marked little birds are a common sight, clustering around bird tables or clinging acrobatically to feeders. They are found throughout Britain and Europe, and it is estimated that there are more than three and a half million breeding pairs in the British Isles, nesting in holes in trees, walls and stumps, or happy to make use of nesting boxes, to which they will return year after year.


At around 12cm (5 inches) long, with a wingspan of 18cm (7 inches), this cheerful little bird is an ideal subject for the compact Alibaba vase, which is cast in fine bone china and glazed before the artist begins work. The blue tit, clinging to a pine twig, is painted entirely by hand, using special ceramic paints to build up the wonderful bright blue and yellow of its plumage, and it takes the greatest skill and the use of the finest brushes to capture every detail of the bird’s feathers and markings. On the rear of the vase there is another small detail of the pine. Finally, the rim of the vase is highlighted with a band of 22 carat gold.


This delightful vase is available only from Bronte’s website, and would make a wonderful gift for any bird lover, or anyone who appreciates fine ceramic art.
